Can't install flash on Suse 64bit

I cant seem to install flash on Suse 64bit. It just gives me an error that says it doesnt support x86_64. Is there anyway at all to install this.

There currently is no support for flash in 64bit for Linux. Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I too am anxiously awaiting that support.

It's possible to setup a chroot to use 32-bit for flash and anything that doesn't work in 64 bit. I don't have any directions handy now, but I'm sure there's some explanations somewhere with a bit of searching.

as mentioned millions of times on this and many forums. There is no flash for x86_64. The solution is simply to install a 32 bit browser, like firefox. If you want media support with the browser (mplayer, win32 codecs), then you also need the 32bit version of such player.
